SW Boise Area 500, is a large area runs south of Interstate 84, taking in a small portion of residential areas to the far west of the area. Most residential neighborhoods are in the area between I-84 and Amity Road as the north/south borders, and half way between Cloverdale and Five Mile Rds. as its western border. Cole Road is the road that somewhat divides the more populated section with the majority of this of this area, which tends to be more industrial, with a lot of undeveloped ground.

MLS Area 500- SW Boise Idaho Homes and Lifestyle
The neighborhoods in this section of Boise tend to be more established although you will find that as the population of Boise has spread in general, this area too, has seen more development in the past several years. Many of the homes in this location are on larger lots, from 1-5 acres, and allow livestock such as horses, giving these neighborhoods a very rural feel. Even the newer developments feel removed from the bustle of city life, probably because there are fewer retail stores and business parks.
As you travel east from this more populated area, you will travel toward the Boise Airport. The Boise Air terminal/Gowen Field serves both civil and military needs. At the time of its opening in its current location in 1938, the Boise Airport featured the country’s longest runway (8,860 feet) and was a leader in the aviation industry in the U.S. The airport grew slowly, adding two concourses in 1969 and 1979 until a massive terminal expansion was completed in 2004. This expansion project, costing 108 million dollars was necessary because the old terminal was misaligned with the runway and so could not support any additional runways. The building itself was structurally unsound and so the decision was made for a full-scale renovation. Pretty nondescript before its renovation, the Boise Airport is now architecturally beautiful and more in keeping with the beauty of the city it serves.
Gowen Field is home to the headquarters of the Idaho National Guard. Formerly a WWII training ground for Army Air Corps, Gowen Field was turned over to the city of Boise after the war ended. The base was named after an army pilot named Paul Gowen from Caldwell, who was killed in 1938 in Panama. The Air National Guard started flying airplanes out of Gowen Field in 1950, and now employs more than 2.800 guard members and civilians on base.
If you follow Pleasant Valley Road south of the airport, you will pass the Boise Industrial Park. As the name suggests, this area is home to many businesses and industries. If you are an animal lover, turn left onto Gorman, and a half a block down and on your right, you will see the Idaho Humane Society. This is the main shelter sight and although they have adoption sights in the local PetSmart stores, the only place that you can relinquish animals or drop of stray animals is at this location on Dorman St. The Humane Society’s mission is to advocate for animals. The Idaho Humane Society takes care of abandoned or stray animals as well as pets whose owners can know longer take care of them. They make sure the animal is in good health and are spayed or neutered before putting them up for adoption. Adoption fees for dogs range from $20 to $300 depending on the breed and size as well as the age and condition of the dog. Fees for cats range from $10 to $75. The Humane Society also provides veterinary services for low-income pet owners.
The Boise Parks and Recreation Dept. has its Community Forestry Office on Dorman Street as well. Their “NeighborWoods” program provides free trees to property owners who agree to plant them on their own property and within 10 feet of the street or sidewalk. Mainly geared toward residents who don’t have enough room in the public right of way to take advantage of traditional tree planting programs provided by Community Forestry. This Department also provides educational programs for tree care, teaching owners to plant, prune and take care of sick trees. Residents can also purchase mulch for $15.00 per cubic yard from Community Forestry.
